Movember is a charity set up in the name of men's health - prostate cancer in particular. Throughout the month formerly known as November, men across the world grow Moustaches to help raise awareness about the very real health issues they face.

A number of my fabulous friends are joining in this year and are all looking remarkably hairy and very nearly Magnum P.I-like!

But yes, it is a very real, very serious, very important cause - to find out all about it, or to make a donation, click the button!

I finally got around to making these postcards using the fruit and veg patterns i have been working on.
Each set includes 5 different postcards: cherries, apples, lemons, mange-touts and aubergines. Each of which can be eaten as one of the 5 daily reccomended portions of fruit and veg that help to maintain a healthy diet. The postcards themselves however, should not be eaten and will not in any way improve your daily diet...!

Being healthy means nothing if you are not happy, and one of the most effective ingredients that helps to maintain happiness is good friends. It's important to keep in touch with loved ones, so with these super healthy postcards you can keep in touch with your recommended quota of 5 friends per day! How very handy indeed!

Lucy kindly invited me to share her stall at! last week in Camberwell. We had much fun selling our wares and eating slice of homemade cake after slice of homemade cake... and the most fabulous biscuits ever, made by The Biscuiteers!

There were a lot of other lovely stalls: The collected adventures of b. b. barry, Jess Turnbull, and Mr PS to name but a few.

And here is our little stall in all it's glory :o)

So, I am a little late posting about this, but nevermind...!
A couple of weeks ago, i received a mysterious email inviting me to a 'VIP launch party', with very few clues as to what the whole business was about. When my invitation arrived in the post, there were even fewer clues; just a time, date, place and a company name: driedonpaper. The invitation itself however, was rather special indeed:

A stamp, an ink pad and a piece of yellow card: a print-it-yourself invitation! Fabulous!

Any way, yes, after a few more days of trying to unravel this cryptic conundrum all was revealed in Shoreditch Studios last week. The launch was for a new mobile phone with more features you can shake a stick at. Now this is not really my general area of interest... I'm happy as long as i can send a couple of (preferably) free text messages, make a few quick calls here and there, and play a few games of su doku... and if it looks pretty, well that's a bonus..! But yes, regardless of that, the party was still rather excellent.
pictures pictures pictures:

It was all rather 'art' focussed. Inside the first room there were several installations with themes such as time, music, robotics, the world, telephones, and so on.

There was also a wall of prints created especially for the event. Some designs were even included in the goody-bag for us to take home at the end of the night. (the goody-bags also included a t-shirt, and a memory stick)

It did infact turn out to be quite a nice night - I should mention that it was also my actual birthday night, so it was rather excellent to be provided with unlimited free champagne all night! And plus, they had my absolute dream clock there! I have been eyeing up a similar (newer) one from Habitat for about a year now... I may well just have to cave in and buy it now! Although... do they make much noise...? I wonder if it would keep me up at night with its flap-flap-flapping?
hmm... Answers on a postcard please!
